these kids made a mistake, everyone does. These Kids, Made a big one, but dont you think they already now that?
these kids have to deal with the fact that they cant play.

But take away there right to help out and watch is ridiculouse. Kids make mistakes and Im sure they are learning from them.

As far as the coaches,Leave them out of it, It wasnt there fault that they drank!. They are not the parents, so leave them alone.

I know these kids, and some are my friends, These kids now that they were wrong, but what i dont understand is why they were the only ones, there were other kids there that were drunk, mostly half of the dance was, so yes they were hand picked and that isnt right.

Its called the right to speak, and the right to have your own opinion, so the shirts there wearing do not say anything bad, its ridiculouse that the teachers can make signs grow the heck up.
this is ridiculouse,
as far as this so called tennis star!!. Courney smith had it in her purse so news flash SHE SHOULDNT GET ANY SPECIAL PRIVLIGES!

the students signed a contract. stop covering up for your kids and let them face the music. Accepting responsibility will benefit your children for life!

its unfair that the school breaks the rules stated in the same contract which states that you would need parental consent before testing any student so whos really at fault.

It's too bad some of the parents are not taking action. Its that reason that the school is. Someone needs to teach these kids responsiblilty.

The Superintentendent of the school makes me laugh when he talks about what kind of message these parents are sending their kids. This dispute is not about the punishment and never has been. It is about constitutional rights which were violated and the subsequent lying by the police officer and the school officials. Three students refused to take that test and were subsequently forced to take it. After objections to this blatant violation of school policy written by the Superintendent himself, and the obvious violation of constitutional rights, the Administration circled the wagons and decided to cover up and lie about their use of Gestapo tactics. This is not the first time that this administration has lied to protect a police officer who has violated the law and then lied to cover up his legal lapses. They are teaching the students involved that it is all right to break the law and then lie about it as long as your intentions are good. They make this seem like parents are only mad because of the severity of the punishment. The parents are furious because of the incompetence and dishonesty this administration has exhibited not only in the handling of this but in other cases as well. So far the school authorities have changed their story three different times as to what happened that night. I would bet everything I have that not one of them, or the police officer involved, will take a polygraph test to support their stories.

Dear JFK student08,
Please learn to use your spell check or pay more attention to your spelling the next time you post. It's pitiful you're going to graduate and you can't use proper grammer or spelling when writing. You will need those skills once you hit the real world. Or you're planning not to need them at McDonalds?

As a current teacher (and not in the Cheek-Sloan district), it is becoming alarming how often students have a parent come in to "advocate" for their rights. It was a school function, which has school rules. Students signed a code of conduct stating that they understood these rules. Where is the argument? Why are questions being asked? It's black and white: if you are drunk (not to mention underage) and on school property, you will be subjected to consequences. For all of the people that are out there complaining about the students' rights... you would be the first one complaining if a loved one of yours was killed by a drunk driver. It does take a village to raise a child. We don't have eyes in the backs of our heads. We need to watch our children and make sure they learn from their mistakes. If all they learn is that rules are flexible and don't apply to them, then where will we all be in 10, 20, or 30 years?

That would be Angelo's aunt on the Board of Education.

And yes this is also about the punishment. Only 5 days of in-school suspension? Yes, only 5, not the 30 days that so many people seem to have been misinformed.

being involved with the planning of the dance, it is a fact that the police officer there was not off duty and was requested to be there.

If you knew "Auntie Claire's" last name you would probably figure out(like an intelligent human being) that they're not related you dumb b*tch. If they were I'm sure he would still be on the football team.
i do know claire's last name-- ferrucci. and yes she is related to yavicoli.

This is such a shocking event. I would never have guessed teenagers in school would actually drink.

What is this world coming to?

I went to JFK in 1974 & had things done to me that would be considered far worse than a couple of beers. I did not kill anyone or cry to my parents. It was part of growing up.

It is reality, so deal with it.

Hey .... what about finding where the kids got the alcohol ? Let's determine the source or sources. Then prosecute the person or persons responsible. YES ... the kids were wrong ... but until you prosecute the " SOURCE ".... the kids will continue to procure and consume the product.

Your idea actually makes sense & is practical. That is why it will not be acccepted. That idea should be applied to drugs as well. Do not waste money going after end users, go after dealers pushing drugs.

This is Buffalo, what can we do besides move out?
